Injury History.

History. Four-star recruit from Jennings, LA. Starred at Jennings High School, where he gained 8,864 total yards with 115 total touchdowns.

Strengths. Good size, better build. Outstanding long speed, has a chance to score every time he touches it. Runs hard, has a lot of power behind that speed. Great accelerator, puts his foot in the dirt and explodes out. Great hips, can flip em and change direction, without slowing down. Strong lower half, racks up the yards after contact. Great understanding of how to play off contact. Improved his receiving throughout his career. Has played, and shined when the lights are brightest. A resume, as good as it gets, breaking multiple ACC career rushing records.

Weaknesses. Needs to refine ball security. Needs to work on his drops. Has some tread on his tires dating back to high school.


Evaluation based on. Notre Dame 20′
